🍃 Autumn 1 🍃
Science - We're asking "What types of rocks are there?" We want to know about the different types of rocks and how soil is formed.
History - A study of the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages. What was the difference between the Stone, Bronze and Iron ages? What was it like in Britain? What tools did they use? How did they live day to day?
R.E. - We begin a new R.E. enquiry where we will learn about Divali and what it means to belong. We will be introduced to Hindu beliefs about this celebration.
Maths - We start this half term looking at Place Value, then addition and subtraction.
English - We start this half term by focusing upon writing super sentences.

Our current class read is:-
Books we have read so far:-
Currently, we are writing sentences using conjunctions such as For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet or So to extend our sentences. We use the mnemonic FANBOYS to help us remember these.

Learning Journey - History
In History, we enjoyed the 'magical middle' of our focus on the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages by making our own Stone Age arrows. We brought sticks in from home and then used the hacksaw to saw a notch to hold a flint arrow head. We used string to hold this in place, then added feathers too.
Learning Journey - History
In History, we explored and learned about some of the tools that were used in the Stone Age. We made our own paper Stone Age axes.
In Maths, we have been working hard to catch up on our learning lost during lockdown and on Friday over the last few weeks we have been learning about directions. Today, we played a game helping Wally from "Where's Wally" to find lost objects by directing him using the maths vocabulary such as quarter turn half turn, full turn, left and right.
In Science, we have been observing and testing the properties of different types of rocks. We tested them by pouring water on them to see if they are permeable or impermeable Also , we carried out scratch tests on them to see how strong they were.
On Thursday afternoons we are enjoying Outdoor Education in the school grounds. This week we discovered some fairy dust and a letter from the fairies which told us that they had lost their belongings in the school grounds. We decided to help by finding as many as we could.
